Tragedy in Puerto Rico

Story from Latitude 38 of a young pregnant woman raped and murdered.

Latitude 38 - The West's Premier Sailing & Marine Magazine
"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: Wow - what a ride!"

That sucks. My heart goes out to the family & friends. I lived in PR for 3 1/2 years- nice people, beautiful island.

After reading the story- I feel incredibly sad. She deserved better.

ETA: Missed an earlier thread about her death-

There is a new site opening soon This is a name and shame site. I think it is only in Britain at the moment. The sooner it go's worldwide the better. I agree with any site that keeps them monsters of our streets. My heart goes out to the family. God bless
